I was working as Java Backend Developer for almost 5 years of my career and I am still a BackEnd Developer but last year I moved to Kotlin as a primary language for all my new projects. Recently I was tasked to upgrade a legacy Java project and I found myself irritated that some Kotlin features are not there so here I am writing my top list of Kotlin features I like the most:
- I don’t need to put semicolons at the end of the line anymore
- I have nice wrappers to work with arrays
- Put your functions in any place
- Easy to keep everything immutable
- ‘If’ statement can return value
- Do more at the same time
